UnidenHosting's Acceptable Use Policy (the "policy") for UnidenHosting Services is designed to help protect UnidenHosting, UnidenHosting's customers and the Internet community in general from irresponsible or, in some cases, illegal activities. The policy is a non-exclusive list of the actions prohibited by UnidenHosting. UnidenHosting reserves the right to modify the policy at any time, effective upon posting here.
The following statements pertain to all products and services offered by UnidenHosting.com, LLC:
Customer may only use UnidenHosting Web Hosting Server's for lawful purpose. Transmission of any material in violation of any Country, Federal, State or Local regulation is prohibited. To this effect, child pornography is strictly prohibited as well as housing any copyrighted information (to which the customer does not hold the copyright or an appropriate license) on UnidenHosting Web Hosting Servers. Also, using UnidenHosting's servers or network to conspire to commit or support the commission of illegal activities is forbidden as well.
Unauthorized attempts by a user to gain access to any account or computer resource not belonging to that user (e.g., "cracking"). Unauthorized access, alteration, destruction, or any attempt thereof, of any information of any UnidenHosting customers or end-users by any means or device. Also, the usage of UnidenHosting's computer systems or network to access any system, service, or network without the owner's consent is expressly forbidden.
Any activity which causes service interruptions to either UnidenHosting's network/servers or any outside network. This includes, but is not limited to, the execution of Denial of Service attacks or other maliciously configured software.
Anonymous proxies are easily abused and often cause a negative impact on both the servers and the network they are connected to. As such, they're prohibited on UnidenHosting's network and servers.
Customer agrees to not have any content on their site that advocates, sell or in any way makes available tools or methods to send unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings (spam), or to use UnidenHosting Web Hosting Server's for relaying unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings, or to use unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings to advertise for their site hosted at UnidenHosting. Any complaint we receive about a violation of this or the preceding two points will be taken very seriously and will result in immediate account suspension and or cancellation without a refund. In addition you will incur additional charges for each excessive incident reported. Please refer to our TOS for details, refer to subsection 11.23.
Customer agrees any account found to be hosting a phishing page on UnidenHosting Web Hosting Server's will be suspended and/or terminated with or without notice at the discretion of UnidenHosting. Phishing is defined as any site that masquerades as another trustworthy site in attempts to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, credit card information, banking information, pin numbers, or any other personal information.
Phishing pages result in stolen identities, stolen banking information, stolen credit card information, and fraud that can cause the victims of these pages weeks, months, years, or even a lifetime of problems. Due to the serious issues that phishing pages cause, phishing is not something that will be taken lightly. In the event that your account is suspended for phishing there is a very good chance that your account will not be re-enabled.
Any account suspended or terminated due to a phishing violation will be ineligible for refund. We will invoice you an hourly fee for all time spent investigating any report that results in account suspension or termination. Any account terminated will not be provided a backup. Please refer to our TOS for details, refer to subsection 11.23.2.
You agree that if the UnidenHosting IP numbers assigned to your account are listed on an abuse database or blacklist like Spamhaus, you will be in violation of this AUP, and UnidenHosting may take reasonable action to protect its IP numbers and subsidiary rented IP numbers, including suspension and/or termination of your service, regardless of whether the IP numbers were listed as a result of your actions. In addition you will incur additional charges per incident. For additional information and clarification please refer to our TOS subsection 11.24.
Usage of the UnidenHosting network to impersonate another person or entity, be it through Email, Internet Forums, or any other means, is strictly prohibited. This includes forging or modifying the source IP address within the header of IP packets originating from your service or spoofing emails whether or not it is done for malicious purposes is prohibited.
Customer agrees to not engage in activities pertaining to Black Hat SEO, Spamdexing, and so-called “Scraper sites.” These can all have a severely detrimental effect on server performance and are not permitted.
Any conduct that is likely to result in retaliation against UnidenHosting's network or website, or UnidenHosting's employees, officers or other agents, including engaging in behavior that results in any server being the target of a denial of service attack (DoS).
With the exception of UnidenHosting Dedicated Server and tailored Storage or Cloud Storage products, the customer agrees to make use of UnidenHosting Web Hosting servers primarily for the purpose of hosting a website, and associated email functions. Data uploaded must be primarily for this purpose.
UnidenHosting Web Hosting services are not intended to be used for data backup or archiving purposes. For example, you are not allowed to import or store personal mail archives. Forwarding all emails from another fully-hosted email address for archival purposes is no longer allowed. Further, hosting accounts cannot be used for file storage, such as for account backups, security cameras, storage of emails used to transfer files, etc.
We reserve the right to delete your these files if they get out of hand! We also reserve the right to negotiate additional charges with the Customer and/or the discontinuation of the backups/archives at our discretion. If you exceed your allocated transfer bandwidth for a month, you may be billed at the rate of $1 per additional 10GB.
